PLAN YOUR VISIT
Escape ordinary experiences and explore the rugged beauty of Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Amidst the live oak thickets, limestone outcroppings and stands of Ashe juniper, nestled away in the rustic hills of Somervell County you will discover a sanctuary for endangered species.
Our goal is promoting the preservation and procreation of threatened and endangered species, environmental awareness, and providing a recreational and educational experience for people of all ages. Below, you will find offerings that will help you plan your trip to Fossil Rim and the Glen Rose area.
Our Reputation Precedes Us...
When you visit us for a stay, you multiple choices. The Lodge was the original “ranch house” for the property and, with a few modifications, now serves as a bed and breakfast. Located a half-mile further inside the wildlife center from The Lodge, you’ll find Foothills Safari Camp.
There, you’ll discover seven cabins. The camp is also the location of our glassed-walled pavilion where breakfast is served.
At the midway point of our Gosdin Scenic Drive, you will find the Overlook where you can get out and stretch your legs, plus visit the Nature Store, and Overlook Café.
Our Nature Store offers many selections of souvenirs and gifts for every age. After ordering some food at the Overlook Café, you can sit down and enjoy it at a nearby picnic table.
